Course Review: 

‘The course was fantastic, being very well presented throughout. It helped me to undo some of my misunderstandings about Mentoring. The greatest impact is realising that I didn’t need to solve my mentee’s problems. Through open questions and by using the T.Grow method I can help the mentee to find solutions themselves. This has hugely helped me in my sessions and I think has helped my mentee too. The style was engaging and open, which meant we were able to ask lots of questions and benefit from the advice of our trainer’.
